Trimming down content
« on: May 03, 2010, 10:53:06 AM »
Just so none of my loyal visitors freak out, I will be trimming down the content within the next month or so. Thanks to generous contributions from fans, the site has ballooned to nearly 600 pages! As you might imagine, maintaining it has become a real pain for one person with a full-time job. It's also gotten to the point where I've posted almost everything I have, which was never my intention. Also, I haven't watched TWC with any regularity since 2003 or so. While I do enjoy going through recent footage (I often find good songs I've never heard before), I often get questions about recent things and I don't have a clue what they're talking about. :P So what I plan to do is cycle through content (video and images anyway) every week or so. Much like what Charles did when he was around.

Any chance you could trim down my freshman 15 while you're at it? :P

it's a saying in college - "freshman 15" refers to the amount of weight one gains throughout the first year in college from excessive alcohol drinking.  :whistling: :P

PSA much? ;) Haha...sorry to go off-topic.

I understand...much of the content on there is valuable, but some of it is just—odd. To say the least. So with some of the content, I wouldn't mind to see it go. But that's just my opinion.

in college, the only reason to consume alcohol is to have a good time...some abuse that power...tyler...(jk) you'll find that many people in college don't drink to solve their problems, at least not here. :unsure:

I hope you won't get rid of my pictures of the tour of TWC's facilities.  :no: The images and videos is probably what I look at the most. I also love the pictures of the cities and backgrounds of the Business Travel Forecast and the segments, such as the Tropical Update, Winter Weather Update, Weekend Outlook, etc. I hope you don't get rid of that, either.  :no:

I'd have to dig to find it. Some of the things in the videos are really cool but weird. Like some of the 1990s Christmas videos...those are weird but I'd never want to see them go. IMO, if it fits in TWCT's scope, I say it shouldn't be in TWCC. But that's just my opinion and I have no control over this...so it's all your call. I'm fine either way.

Yah, I don't think I should post content I'm not familar with. Which is why I think I'll stop it at 2004 or so.

Matt, you can remove my 4000 videos if you want for cleaning up space. If that STAR I saw wasn't a 4000, but maybe an XL or IS I would have donated here. I just donated the HQ 4000 videos for you guys seeing how far back the 4000 goes that's all. :)
